MoonDay Musings: Equinox Balance

We are approaching an Equinox on September 22nd,  a time when there is a momentary balance of Light and Dark around the world. At this Equinox, the Light Half of the Year tips toward the Dark Half (north of the Tropic of Cancer, the Autumn Equinox) and from the Dark Half to the Light Half (south… Continue reading MoonDay Musings: Equinox Balance

MoonDay Musings:

Is there anything more precious than freedom of thought? Or the ability to think, evaluate, analyze, question, probe...? As Voltaire said, “Dare to think for yourself.” The work that we do and the beliefs that we hold — especially those of us who follow earth-based spirituality or work in alternative health or other "woo woo"… Continue reading MoonDay Musings:

MoonDay Musings: Poetry of the Earth

Greek philosopher Plutarch said that "Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks." Chilean poet Pablo Neruda spoke to this too, "... my poetry was born between the hill and the river, it took its voice from the rain, and like the timber, it steeped itself in the forests." We each have poetry… Continue reading MoonDay Musings: Poetry of the Earth

MoonDay Musings: accepting uncertainty

This quote — a question really — from Pema Chödrön came up in my Facebook memories, from five years ago. What if rather than being disheartened by the ambiguity, the uncertainty of life, we accepted it and relaxed into it? When I first read Chödrön’s words, I saw them as an invitation to freedom... or… Continue reading MoonDay Musings: accepting uncertainty

MoonDay Musings: Star Dreams

This month has been so wonderful for stargazers, with the unexpected arrival of Comet Neowise (so brilliant and large in the sky), the return of the annual Perseid Meteor Showers, and so many planets brightly shining in the night sky (Jupiter, Saturn, Mars). What do you see when you look up at the night sky?… Continue reading MoonDay Musings: Star Dreams

MoonDay Musings: Listen to the wind

Meditation takes many forms and each of us can create our own meditative practice — walking, sitting, practising yoga, some work in stillness, others with singing bowls or music — but what is key is the creation of sacred space, the connection to Self and Spirit, being in the flow, the listening . . .… Continue reading MoonDay Musings: Listen to the wind

Moonday Musings: My body is a wilderness

These words from Ojibway author Richard Wagamese, now walking with the ancestors, always move me, and remind me of my connection to the land, sea and sky around me. “My body is a wilderness. To understand that I need to inhabit it. I need to contemplate, meditate, and reflect on it just as I need… Continue reading Moonday Musings: My body is a wilderness

MoonDay Musings: Magic is all around us

Over the last few days I have seen several quotes from Frances Hodgson Burnett’s book “The Secret Garden”, published in 1911. There must be a reason this is coming into my awareness! This quote in particular resonated with me… and there are many many more! ⁣ “Sometimes since I've been in the garden I've looked… Continue reading MoonDay Musings: Magic is all around us

MoonDay Musings: Infinite Worlds Within

I love how author Neil Gaiman thinks. This quote resonated so strongly with me. We have infinite possibility within us.⁣⁣.. and infinite worlds. And during this time of lockdown (for many of us), we may find ourselves connecting with those inner worlds in ways we haven't before.

MoonDay Musings: Finding a new rhythm

I am so inspired today by these words from Lao Tzu: "When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be."⁣ ⁣During this time of slower living — and living with restrictions, and potentially with loss, fear, anxiety, frustration and other emotions — many are finding new rhythms as they explore… Continue reading MoonDay Musings: Finding a new rhythm
